Hired gun's go where there's the most money...and maybe a chance to replace his boss after a few more years of his boss getting wupped.
FUN watching even though both teams struggled at times. Best of all....THE BUCKS WON......AGAIN.
Would be nice to know the stats that support the increased safety of the helmet.
This success should help recruiting. Got to get that top tier talent to consider OSU....and stay for more than one season.
I decided to subscribe to BTN...just to see dem Buckeyes.I haven't done this for Buckeye Basketball for a very long time. GO BUCKS !
I look forward to watching each game.I haven't done that in a very long time.
Time for our two fabulous backs to have some fun this year.....and terrorize all those we play.
Even URBAN MEYER cannot find another football game for Barrett to play.OP this "BARRETT" "discussion' is over. Coulda, woulda, shoulda is not uplifting nor productive. Lighten up, lets discuss the potential glorious future of the 2018 Football Buckeyes. Or for now the surprising resurrection of out Basketball program and its exciting potential.
Matta knew rebounding was a problem...he just could not fix it.
Saban showed...its all about doing what ever it takes to in. It's NOT yesterdays resume.It's NOT about Loyalty. It's NOT about a players feelings. It's about the whole team busting their ass all season and giving THE TEAM a chance to win.
Yes it did.
Never happen.WIN....what ever it takes ....is not in URBAN'S dictionary.
Play calling in the 2nd half of the Big 10 Championship and the Cotton Bowl.....coaches crawled into a hole and pulled the dirt in over the top of themselves. Exactly the opposite of what we did to Wisconsin in the Big 10 championship a few years ago(that powered us into the final 4 and NC.). Hope we get over the "Tresselitis" by August.
Great article OP. I tuned in..hoping against hope that the game would be worth watching,if only for a little while.Was I ever wrong.I ended up screaming and yelling at the TV and watching a team throttle the former #1 ranked team.....and never let them recover. I haven't felt that way about Buckeye basketball in a very long time.We truely live in a golden age of Buckeye sports,and I'm loving every moment. GO BUCKS !
just W O W !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There is a reason for that.
Four Interceptions AND a defense that allowed over 50 points to an unranked IOWA team will guarantee no final four every time.Follow that up with a BIG 10 championship game where OSU went into its shell in the second half(and barely won) certainly did not impress.Not after last years championship impression.
Four interceptions by Barrett against an unranked team resulting in a thorough butt whipping was not forgotten.Neither was the giving up 55 points by our defense.
Loss to Iowa.....poor performance in 2nd half of Big 10 Championship.....poor offensive performance in Cotton Bowl ....all point to OSU not good enough to be in the final 4.
Funny thing. Seems all the players on the four play off teams decided to show up......... and PLAY to help their team mates try to win their games.Even the Heisman winner.Even first round projected draft picks.Funny thing.
We did not have the coaches who wanted to throw the ball, or the qb who could. What a jewel left unpolished.
If this WAS not Mr Wards last game and he just decided not to play....because.Would it be ok for him to pick and choose the games he wanted to play ? I don't think so. He should have quit the team. Next man up. Team means team....and someone who actually wants to fight alongside his brothers in every fight.NOT just the ones he chooses .
and the quarterback decides he should carry the ball more than his 1000+ yard rushers.
The good news....we will have a qb that can actually pass the ball, for greater than 15 yards, next year.And that qb will carry the ball less than our two 1000+ yard running backs for a change.
